Here you’ll be kept up to date with all the musings from our team here at one of Sussex’s oldest inns.

Our wonderfully wonky pub with rooms is more than just a beautiful building in the centre of Ditchling village, and so much happens within these Tudor walls. We’d love to share some of what goes on ‘behind the scenes’

In addition to that, we will be sharing our thoughts on the way to get a good night’s sleep, tips for the perfect staycations, the latest seasonal dishes from our chefs, and you’ll be able to read all about the goings on in our village.
